Sharp Practise
Steal With Pride
Ryeharbour Records

Sharp Practise is founded by Nigel Clothier who is a well-traveled songwriter. He's joined by Simon Foley, Ryan Lawon and Michael Elwood. Their mid-tempo rock is very well-played and done in an inspired fashion.

"Burnin' Blood" is a rockin' tune with a strong chorus that they do well. "Keep it dark" is a bluesy dirge that Clothier and co handles well. It's a suggestive song with a great chorus. "Over to Caitilin's" is a dreamy song with a nice lyric about a girl. "Justice" closes the album on a good note, Clothier singing in a convincing voice and the guitar playing's ace. It's a very accomplished album by a good band.
